Brunt Boggart: A Tapestry of Tales

by David Greygoose
£8.99   paperback  Pushkin Press (2018)

Brunt Boggart: A Tapestry of Tales by David Greygoose

"A rich, primordial dreamtime... A wonderful excavation of the story traditions that our ancestors huddled around for warmth... highly recommended."
(Alan Moore, author of Watchmen)
"Utterly wonderful… in his bones, David Greygoose understands the rhythms of great storytelling."
(Kevin Crossley-Holland)
This is a book like no other: a magical tapestry of folk tales, woven together to build a world that is as strange yet familiar as a half-remembered dream. It is an old world, a world of enchanted corn dollies and wild dances in poppy fields, a world of tricksters, lovers and fools.
 
Through this world, Greychild must journey in search of his mother: from the village of Brunt Boggart, down to the treacherous Pedlar Man’s track, all the way to the distant Arleccra, a city of treasures and temptation. If you follow him, a part of you will never come back...
